The public have got all of February to provide feedback on the review of environmental factors for the western section of the Picton Road upgrade.
Member for Wollondilly Judy Hannan is urging the local community to have their say.
“This important upgrade has been a long time coming for anyone who uses Picton Road and I invite everyone to get involved to make sure we get this right,’’ she says.
“Work in scope also includes upgrading the interchange at the M31 Hume Motorway to a diverging diamond layout with new bridges over the motorway and new shared pathways, as well as the reconfiguration of existing intersections along the western section of Picton Road.
“Upgrades to Picton Road will support growing communities and businesses across Western Sydney and the Illawarra-Shoalhaven by providing safer, easier and faster access to jobs, services, education and suppliers for generations to come.”
Transport for NSW will collate and consider the submissions received and prepare a submissions report.
The NSW Government has committed $44 million and the Australian Government $80.7 million to the planning of the upgrades of Picton Road.
Timing and funding for construction are yet to be confirmed.
Three drop-in information sessions will also be held during February involving a Transport for NSW project team.
The first session will be held at Wollondilly Shire Hall, 52 Menangle Street, Picton this Saturday, February 10 between 10am and 2pm.
A second session will be held at Wilton Plaza, 1 Greenbridge Drive, Wilton on Thursday, February 15 between 4pm and 7pm.
The third session will be at Wilton Recreation Reserve, 20 Broughton Street, Wilton on Wednesday, February 21 between 2pm and 5pm.
